of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
, you're very close to that car and everything that's taking place. have you heard anything from law enforcement to you and other residents in the area about evacuating and staying toward the front of the building? >> yeah, we had. what seemed to be army personnel and knocked on our door, told us to lock up the doors, go to the back of the house and don't come out and stay low. >> is that where you are? you seem close to the activity. >> right now, we -- i'm with a few of my roommates here, and we're in the living room. kind of watching what's being televised so i can stay on skype with you. >> and you posted photos on twitter and you said your twitter handle is akitz. and you said you just posted a photo of the bomb robot. and earlier this evening, you posted some photos of bullet holes in your home. we're going to put those up. can you describe what was taking place at that time? >> yes, so, we actually -- my roommates and i didn't even notice the bullet holes until at least an hour and a half later. and then we saw the significant hole through the westward wall in our house. and w
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
on the books, now laws in our country. i think that's what we are going to have to do. we are going to have to find people, across the aisle, who we can work w. in order to pass legislation in this area of gun violence that will make a difference in the lives of millions of americans. >> mr. lynch. >> sure. i want to point out that we serve in the legislature with 435 members. you can't break for lunch without getting 218 votes. so whenever you hear a legislator saying i solve the cargo security issue, i'm responsible for port security even though i voted against t. i'm the one who is responsible for nuclear safety, i'm the one who did the assault weapons ban, look, the truth of the matter is ed has been on the side of big business. on ast at that -- 1/2 25 -- nafta on fishing rights, i'm with the fishermen, you're with the fish. on the banking issues, i'm with the taxpayers, and the people of america, you're with the big banks and the bailout. on all these issues on the telecommunications, you're with the telecommunications companies. >> that's quite a laundry list. let him respond. >> tha
tragedy to a law office in san francisco in 1993. where a crazed gunman -- i remember his name but i won't say it -- with an assault weapon killed eight people and wounded six. one of those people was a brave warrior who threw his body over the body of his wife, sacrificing his own life to save hers. now, that young man was one of my son's best friends, and i know personally how these horrific and senseless tragedies live on with the survivors. the parents, the spouses, the children, the family and the friends. it changes their lives and it pierces their hearts forever. so i've told you a couple of stories about california, but let me say this. let's look at what's happened across this nation since sandy hook. in the 120 days since sandy hook, more than 2,200 americans have been killed by gun violence. hardly anyplace was spared. now, we know there are many, many firearms in america. 300 million firearms in the united states. if you were to divide that up, that would be one gun per person. of course, there are many people who just have many, many guns. now, this is a 50% increase in the
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
support and that stands a good chance of passing the house and being signed into law by the president. the legislation is not perfect. most are provisions that if not all senators can support. some will appeal to more than others. no one will like every provision. neither should anyone oppose every pro vision. the legislation, we're offering is comprehensive and workable solution to our broken immigration system that responses have not and cannot repair. the status quo damages our economy, disregards the rule of law and negligents our humanitarian responsibilities. a problem of that magnude will never be easy to address. but never more necessary to address, either. the resolution cannot be achieved by means other than political compromise and resolve to not make the perfect be the enemy of the good and that's what we tried to do. we agreed on provisions to secure along the boarder. we addressed the labor needs of a growing and competitive economy with a workable guest worker policy and sensible expansion of the h1-bv program. we enforce the rule of law. we've confronted the reality of
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
not answer the door unless the people at the door can clearly identify themselves as law enforcement officials. this mayhem unfolded overnight starting with a shooting on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge. that's one mile from where we are standing right now at the scene of the boston marathon attack. >> an officer who was killed on the campus of m.i.t. was killed a short time later, a carjacking took place and a police chase took place after that with reports of explosives involved. during the chase, the transportation authority officer was wounded in a shoot-out and suspect number one was critically wounded and later died at the hospital. we expect a press conference in 15 minutes at the hospital. >> we have drew griffin with us right now on the streets of watertown, massachusetts. again, this is the area right now which is a very active crime scene where people are being told not to leave their houses where it is believed that suspect number two, the man involved in the boston marathon bombings and the man involved in this car chase and manhunt,
they had been planning it and this is how the governor weighs in on that. >> i think all of the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have a million questions and those questions need to be answered. >> in the meantime, prosecutors are working on putting together their terrorism case against him. it's possible they might have charges ready today, but there's certainly no hurry to get him into court obviously because of his medical condition. john? >> susan, i want to talk a little more about the manhunt that was underway. we are seeing these thermal images taken just before the capture. what do they show us? >> that's right. we received those from the massachusetts state police. amazing pictures that we're receiving from them. it illustrates a technology that they had. when they got a tip there might be someone in the boat, the suspect sent up the hopper with thermal imaging equipment and it it showed that there was something in that boat because of the heat that was being generated. so that's the picture of form that you
are you learning? >> wolf, a law enforcement official told me today that authorities are preparing for a long and slow investigation here and it starts with pieces of the explosive devices scattered along an enormous crime scene. even before the dust started to settle, authorities were asking what kind of explosive device created this. the picture of the bombs now starting to emerge is that they were deadly but crude. a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the boston bomb investigation tells cnn the bombs were hidden in bags inside a metal pressure cooker. a law enforcement source also told cnn that it's likely but not certain that a timing device was used to detonate the bomb. emergency room doctors said they believed the bombs contained bbs and nails intended by the bomber to kill or maim as many people as possible. >> there were a variety of sharp objects that we found in their bodies, probably this bomb had multiple metallic fragments in them and we removed them. >> mike bouchard is a former top official with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. >> it cou
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
. >> this gun bill is open to amendments including any state obey other state's concealed carry laws. that got more votes on the gun bill. given democrats couldn't even get this to work, does it feel like the whole bill was doomed to the start? >> which makes you wond whrer they counted noses properly back in january. remember, it was after the horrific events in connecticut. there was an emotional moment and maybe the president said look, i know the votes aren't there. we're going to build and build and build just as the votes aren't there for healthcare initially. maybe he said we've got work to do. i'm not going to shy away from the fight. it does make you wonder whether on an issue like gun control they should have said earlier on, guys where are the votes? who do we need to work on? how do we get pryor and heitkamp? >> john: i know god forbid they find out the gun used to kill the mit cop was purchased illegally. it will be politicized all over again. i want to switch gears briefly because i can't keep you for the full hour. the rating agency, standard & poors, our old friend they want to
of massachusetts. >> there's an enormous presence of federal, state and also local law enforment agencies working very much hand hand and pulling in the same direction. that's important. i think as chief executive my job is to make sure they have the resources they need and to step back and give them the space they need to do what they must do. and we as citizens, i think have to be patient with that the other thing on the comforter side is to assure people of that about which i am confident which is that we will heal. we will be strong and we will be a sustaining community even through arage like this one. >> rose: we kin this evening with mike barnicle of msnbc's morning joe kevin cullen of "boston globe" and john miller of cbs. >> if they think they will get us they don't know much. we care in boston about politics, sports and revenge. the revenge is the laughter of our children. these guys don't knowwhat ty did. every cop i talked to today, just hard looks and people are ready. and i have no doubt they'll identify who did this. boston is a tough town. it's the kind of town where people take
with governor of massachusetts, deval patrick. we have talked to law enforcement officials and people from the medical profession and good citizens of boston and massachusetts. i would like to look at this through unique eyes of you, as the chief executive officer of massachusetts, tell me what you saw and what you felt and where you are and where you have to go with the people of massachusetts in absorbing what has happened and where they go from here. >> well, charlie, i was -- i was at the finish line opposite the blast until an hour, an hour and a half before the first two of the blasts. and like so many people who had been there in the course of day and were at the time of blast, of course, one thing that goes through your mind is there but for the grace of god. i think as a community we're rattled and in some cases shattered. i think everyone's sense of security is certainly shaken. but i also know us, and i know that we're made of pretty resilient stuff. and that we are turning to each other rather that on each other and that we will heal. that will take some time. >> rose: with res
a good chance of passing the house and being signed into law by the president. the legislation is not perfect. there are provisions that most if not all senators can support. some will appeal to more than others. no one will like every provision. still images and our economy and neglect our humanitarian responsibilities. magnitudeof that would never be easy to address and never more necessary. cannot be achieved by means .arry it we have addressed labor needs of a growing and competitive economy with a workable worker policy and sensible expansion of hi visa programs. we make it more difficult for employers to hire people who come here illegally. we have confronted the reality of people who came here illegally by proposing lengthy practices and does not place lawful immigrants at a disadvantage. finally, we have recognized our most people who cross borders illegally overstay their visas have done so for the same reason that attracted other immigrants here -- to find economic opportunity and a better life for their families and to live in a society that values human dignity. we
, intelligence agency people, whoever in the law enforcement and intelligence community has the most knowledge about the person they want to interrogate. these are expert interrogators. >> pelley: now, this man 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, this is the mayor of boston, tom menino has been the mayor boston. in july he will have the mayor of boston for 20 years. he's in a wheelchair because he had an accident and broke his leg in the last few days. let's listen in. this is the colonel of the state police, timothy alben. >> for those families that lost loved ones with injuries they have to live with for the rest of their lives, for a police officer, a young man starting a career at m.i.t. and a police officer with the m.b.t.a. who almost lost his life and for neighborhoods that lived in fear for the entire day we are eternally grateful for the outcome here tonight. we have a suspect in custody. i want to thank all of the partners who work tirelessly over the last four days, including the f.b.i., the transit police, our brothers with the boston police department, the u.s. attorney's office and th
for his wife and daughter to cross the finish line. >>> as we promised right now, law enforcement is holding a news conference right now. first, the governor of massachusetts. >> the recovery, and any of us are available to take questions from any of you. so let me start with special agent here. >> good afternoon, my name is rick delauris. yesterday at this time the effort was on saving lives and treating the injured. as soon as important tasks were completed, first responders focused on establishing the criminal investigation. the joint task force composed of more than 30 state and local and federal agencies, including the boston state police, the massachusetts state police, atf, and others responded to the scene. many of them were already there as part of the general security for the marathon already in place. the first step law enforcement took was to secure the physical area around the blast for the purpose of preserving the evidence in the area related to the devices itself. this morning, the fbi, along with boston pd, massachusetts state police and atf officially began the f
there will be quite a bit of evidence coming across to law enforcement and into intelligence. >> john: law enforcement is not convince that there is any link with the fire at the jfk library, and in a day full with speculation, much of it biased i applaud your caution on this. could this device point to one type of suspect over another? >> i don't think it can point to one. what we have here is is there is a tendency as individual details come across to say all right what does this detail imply about the suspect or potential bomber. so let's look at what we got here. we've got a situation in which the bomb did not take place at the time of finish. it took out two hours afterwards where the people have left the grandstand, the international racers have already finished and were away. did that raise questions about competence or on purpose? we have multiple explosions. the question is going to be is there more than one person involved? is it a group? is it a lone person? then the quality of the explosive. that would point to someone who is less sophisticated rather than more sophisticated. then you want
hearing is that it is what's called a bolo, be on the lookout. this was from law enforcement agencies, a law enforcement bulletin given to other investigators and all police in the area to be on the lookout for what they're describing as someone who is dark kskinned, possibly a foreign accent. they have no suspects in custody at this time. this person might have been carrying a black backpack and wearing a sweatshirt and may have been trying to get into the restricted area around where the blast went off before the explosion happened. now doctors are also, according to our sources and information learned by colleagues, are removing ball bearings from some of the people being treated, one of the victims at one of the local 4078hospitals there. this could indicate what the explosive devices were made of. it's described as screwed and sometimes small. there were said to be at least two unexploded devices. my sources are telling me one of the things they're doing, john, are to pick those apart. they would to get the dna evidence for the way they were constructed. as of now, no one is maki
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
. >> the president also announcing this earlier as expected. others are not taking any chances. law enforcement in washington in new york, in san francisco, are in a heightened state of alert. and miami dade police officials say they have increase d the event that attracts half a million spectators each year. today was a very sad day for athletics and for our friends in marathon running. our security plan is developed jointly with the metropolitan police and we were in contact with them soobs we heard the news. >> why don't we get back to the scene. you have new information for us? >> don, we do know now that officials are going to brief reporters at 9:30 just a few hours away. there is so much we don't know. we do not know if this attack was a foreign or domestic attack. but right now investigators are behind me on exitor street. they have set up about six or seven blocks. they are setting up barriers to make the security tighter, don. we're still waiting to hear very much tonight. >> one of the big clues will be the two devices which were not detonated. what sort of clues and information are
stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea
law enforcement officials would be thinking at this time. >> well, i think the main goal right now is to get this other guy in custody before he hurts anybody else and try to close out the situation. he's a very, very dangerous person. i don't think anyone is safe in that area until he's apprehended. and it sounds to me like he doesn't want to be taken alive. so there could be another chutout before this whole thing is over. >> that's what you speculate because the other suspect had an ied strapped to his chest? >> absolutely. we don't know the whole background on these guys. we don't know what their motive was. we don't know exactly all the things. a lot of it is going to be -- we're going to determine that in the next several hours. but it doesn't sound like they want to be captured or he wants to be captured and go through the justice system. i think he's going to shoot it out within way or the other. >> let me ask you a quick question. can this be done by two individuals? meaning do you need more of a support system to get all of the materials that were clearly required to this
it with a constitutional law attorney and former deputy assistant attorney general under president bush. he joins us now. i wasn't even aware this could be done in national security cases. tell us about how it works. >> sure. it's a rare exception. basically what it does is it allows law enforcement to delay issuing a suspect his miranda rights for a limited period to enable law enforcement to get information that would be relevant to public safety. for example, in this case one of the things we want to ask this guy is: is there another attack that might be imminent? who are you working with? are you part of a larger network? questions aimed at making sure public safety is protected, making sure we get any information that is time sensitive right now before he lawyers up and doesn't want to talk with us anymore. >>alisyn: we know that is vitally important because apparently the suspect planted other pipe bombs or explosives, at least, along the chase route. so they somehow knew that when they were trying to get away they had even, you know, planted other things to try to hurt and inflict more harm. so thi
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
knit community. all right, poppy harlow, thank you. >>> the fbi is the lead law enforcement agency right now in this bombing investigation. that is in coordination with state and local police. susan candiotti on the very first steps of the investigation. good morning, susan. what are you hearing? >> hi, john. they certainly haven't stopped since all this started. they're working around the clock actively as you indicated earlier, a lot of things to pursue. they're talking to witnesses and some of those witnesses are even those who have been hospitalized after this event. now no one is being called a suspect at this time. we do understand that one of the people they're speaking with according to sources is someone described as a saudi national whose one of his legs was wounded. that person is under guard at the hospital now. again, there is a large police presence at the hospital. we're told not to read anything special into this. and we are also learning about that one injured person that they are not saying that he is involved. we do know that the injury, of course, was a result o
with his sources in law enforcement all afternoon long and, john, what can you tell us? >> well, one of those hundred people in the hospital is somebody they're interested in. this was an individual who witnesses just before the blast saw and thought was acting suspiciously and after the blast ran away. although we have to say if context a lot of people ran away. he was chased down and tackled, handed over to boston police and this is someone they are talking to now. he's suffering from burns. >> pelley: john, there's been conflicting reports about whether an unexploded bomb was discovered and defused by the police. what do you know about that? >> so you have the two devices that went off and then a number of packages that the bomb squad disrupted. we were told earlier today that one of those was a recovered device. right now there's a little bit walking back from that so we still have some reports that they recovered a device and we have some people saying it now appears that they did not. that would be unfortunate because an intact device would give them a real jump start on clues
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
a mome us for aoment longer. you said upwards of 1,000 law e area. every agency descended upon this small town of watertown, massachusetts. can you describe the scene. you said at one point it was kind of frantic and slowed down a little bit. how about now? >> apparently, we're told they just found another device down the road here. and they're coming back and forth with reinforcements coming in. whatever's happening is happening somewhere down the road there and, you know, we are blocks from getting down there because it is so dangerous and sort of unsecure at this point. but the huge law enforcement presence continues here and, obviously, it's not going to let up until they find this person who is at large. my hunch is that when the sun comes up, that helps law enforcement to find this person. right now, he's under the cover of darkness with weapons and it's a tense situation. and i think they're afraid he may break into someone's home. this is a man who if the charges are correct, has not hesitated to put a bomb near the feet of young children. so, he is considered very dangerous. >> b
with law enforcement sources is entertaining the idea that he may have been framed because he did write extensively on the internet about his conspiracy theories and signed off many of his misses i'm kevin curtis and i approve this message. that is language that is very similar to that contained in the letters that were sent to the president, senator or robert wicker and as well a local judge in tupelo, mississippi, it was written i'm k.c. and i aprof this message i believes his brother was framed. the fbi acted too quickly in this case. this happened right after the boston bombings, they were under a lot of pressure to come up with a suspect. he says they simply came up with the wrong one. bret? >> bret: okay, john. much more on this with the panel. a strange story. we will hear from paul kevin curtis. a hazardous materials team is investigating another possible tainted letter this time a military facility. senator harry reid said it is joint base anna cost i can't bowling. the two suspects in what canadian officials say was a plot to derail a passenger plane in court today. neither en
information, john, coming from the boston globe this morning. according to a law enforcement official the "boston globe" is saying that 30 people were transferred after the attack to hospitals under a code red. that basically means with life-threatening injuries. so that law enforcement official telling the newspaper that could mean that the number of fatalities could rise. we are in the very early stages of knowing how these people will do, even after they get out of initial surgery. some, we're told, will have to go through multiple surgeries after that. >> poppy harlow. our thanks to you. those numbers that you bring up are what are so startling to so many people. one doctor overnight i heard say it was just depressing what he was seeing. another word you could perhaps use, chris, i suppose is infuriating. >> i'm sure. but the bottom line is no matter how he was feeling it's what these medical professionals were doing. if you're seeing pictures of what people were dealing with when those bombs went off you'd be amazed the death toll is not so much higher right now. no question phen
be communicating to law enforcement officials. and there are new questions about whether the fbi dropped the ball after being warned by the russians in 2011 about cz tsarnaev's older brother, tamer ly tamerlan. nick paton walsh is in dagestan, and we have joe johns in washington, but we began with pamela brown with the latest on the investigation. >>> after a week of terror, chaos and heartache, the city of boston is still recovering. there are signs that life is starting to return back to normal here. there is a sense of relief after the arrest of the suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. now the focus is on what charges he will face and when. >> reporter: one week after two deadly bombings exploded in downtown boston killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a complex investigation. and it's hard to say exactly how he
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. under u.s. law united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. and since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> stephanie: yeah, bill clinton was doing a pretty good job of that until george bush came in -- >> he mucked it up. >> you are welcome america. got rid of that surplus. >> stephanie: i was reading the parade magazine piece, on the libary. >> stephanie: yeah, i have a libary, and he hopes he will be remembered as an honest guy. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: kind of the guy that lied us into iraq, but okay. an honest guy? that's the first thing he threw out there. i said this yesterday, he can't be charged -- lindsay, lindsay, talking to you. well-known southern bell he is an american citizen, you can't. >> and peter king is trying to move the goal post by saying the brought the battlefield to america. no, he's an american citizen -- >> he doesn't have an american name, because then -- because he talks weird with a weird accen
.6%. "after the bell" starts right now. david: as thousands of law enforcement officers havee3 thrown a dragnet over the suburban areas west of boston the president and federal law enforcement officials are assessing the situation from their offices in washington, d.c.. liz: peter barnes is joining us now from the white house with the latest. and we want to remind our viewers, we have on delay a lower part of our screen dedicated to the developments in a live camera on the scene in watertown. peter, to you first. >> reporter: well, liz, we haven't heard much out of the white house since this morning when the president was briefed by his national security team in the white house situation room. you can see in this photo he is joined by fbi director mueller. his national security advisor, lisa monaco, attorney general eric holder. you can see the back of vice president biden's head to the right of this picture. white house deputy press secretary josh ernest telling one of our fox news colleagues this morning the president is not trying to micromanage the situation up there. which is one
it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z
law enforcement. >>> from what we understood, you know, they had searched, police had searched much of this watertown community. >> that's right. they've searched several homes going door-to-door. they've searched just about every home, at some poibt. point. clearly, this was not over yet. they needed enough to get out of there and get out of there fast. we knew that things were very fluid and that the situation was very dangerous. so we faded back to beyond the perimeter a little bit more. we got up to a rooftop and we're able to shoot from a little bit of a greater distance. there were flashlights we could see moving around the backyard. clearly, they had secured the scene. they were going around checking out and processing the boat. some of the residents here said they searched his closets, under his beds and everything. he just felt incredibly relieved that it was all home at that point. thank you tonight in water town. a lot of people want to hear his story. >> there are so many stories in this book that we all want to hear. we now know who the alleged bombers are. the question
. under a law of war we can hold the suspect to a enemy combatment not entitled to miranda warnings or the appointment of counsel. the older brother, he was killed on friday, and they investigated him at the request of a foreign government, and they did not find any ties to terrorism. and we are joined from london by a counterterrorism expert, and mike sullivan here is a former acting director of the bureau of tobacco, firearms and explosives. let's start with you in london, will. the fbi talked to this man in 2011. it does beg the question, did they miss something when they talked to tamerlan tsarnaev? >> well, it's always very difficult to say. however, having said that, if you have an individual that is brought in by the authorities and questioned, again, without knowing exactly what the topic or agenda was that they were requesting him on, one would say that there was sufficient intelligence that may have been brought to them by this foreign government. and they could be a potential risk. and one would have hoped they would have been continually monitored beyond that point to in
, while horrific and have caused horrific injury, what we're hearing from law enforcement sources are that they were not terribly sophisticated. they were small. it would have been much worse if it was a higher explosive like c-4 or plastic explosive so you just can't really tell yet. we don't know enough about the forensics to know was this a domestic terrorist group. it's possible, right. we've seen things like oklahoma city, that tragedy. so it could be a domestic group. law enforcement has been careful to say that's the question they can't answer tonight, domestic or foreign. >> very important to do that because so many rumors are swirling around. we live in an era of twitter, facebook, a rumor goes round the world in a few seconds and can be very damaging. is that why the president, you think, was quite circumspect in the use of language, didn't mention terrorism at all, in fact. >> that's obviously right. they want to be absolutely sure what they're dealing with before getting ahead of it. what can be said looking at past plots is al qaeda as a group has encouraged the use o
